Renaissance Social Services is excited to announce that on May 8th we received certification from the State of Illinois to provide Medicaid-funded mental health services to the men and women participating in our supportive housing programs. With Medicaid certification, Renaissance will now be able to bill and collect payment from the state for the mental health services we provide daily – a critical component of the work we do to stabilize people’s lives and keep them securely housed.
Most of the people we serve have serious mental health needs and providing them with quality care is how we assist them on their path to stability and independence. It is how we help to break the cycle of homelessness among those who are most vulnerable to housing instability. This certification not only recognizes the quality of our services, but represents an important way for us to sustain and grow programs that have too often been underfunded in Illinois. We expect to begin billing for Medicaid-eligible services later this year. For more information, please contact me at (773) 645-8900 extension 108.
